Shaping Your Clients Eyes With Lash Extensions

Lash Extensions are not a “one size fits all” type of service. Each client you encounter will have completely different eye shapes and how you apply the extensions can enhance that shape or completely change it.

Here are tips to applying lashes on different eye shapes!

There are a number of different natural shapes to the eyes, but the most common are:

Round, Almond, Deep Set and Hooded


Round Eyes: Round eyes usually require shorter lengths to be applied because their lashes are more prominent than other eye shapes.

Almond Eyes: Almond eyes look best with a ‘cat eye’ shape to help elongate the eye and enhance their shape.

Deep Set Eyes: Deep set eyes typically need longer lashes than normal so that they don’t get lost in the depth of the eye.

Hooded Eyes: Hooded eyes look best with longer lengths on the mid-outer corners and tapering in shorter lengths to the inner corner. This helps open up the eye and the lashes to be more noticeable.


With all eye shapes you can create a more dramatic or natural effect with the different lengths and thicknesses of lashes that you apply.
